Created by IAAD student Aldo Schrumann during his second year of Transportation Design, the Ferrari Celeritas (speed in Latin) is an extreme sportscar created for pure performances and targeted to a small, exclusive group of customers.
The two-seater car features an open body style with large tracks and shoulders and a classic mid-engine layout.
Among the sources of design inspiration are the Ferrari racing cars of the past and two animals: the horse, a symbol of elegance, and the whale shark, the largest living fish, which gave the idea of the dark, aerodynamic “skin” that is used on the center section of the body.
The shark also inspired the pair of wings at the rear, which are actively controlled to optimize down force and aerodynamic efficiency.
